As you all know I'm new to scrapbooking. Lately I have run across some terms that describe the type of scrapping you do ( Shabby chic, etc.). I don't understand what they mean. Is there anywhere I can go to find the meaning of these terms?
There are some “relatively speaking” universal definitions for some common scrapbooking approaches/styles BUT even trying to define them here can lead to a HOTLY debated/nasty thread.
Answering a question like this…is like stepping into a landmine!
By discussing a style with even remotely positive adjectives…by default, you are insulting the opposite style. Saying something like “I love the clean & simple look.” can results in the other camp, the heavy layered & embellishment crowd, getting their panties in a wad. I may even get nasty replies for saying what I just said.
To learn more, it might be faster to do a few searches on the internet or check out some scrapbooking books from the library.
It’s not that people don’t want to be helpful, but discussions surrounding scrapbooking styles have EXPLODED on the site! It’s like religion and politics, you innocently mention sometime and get a HELLSTORM of replies.
And for the record, I think giant flowers have no business being on a scrapbook page. I just had to throw that in.
